-of-living adjustments. john boehner and republicans decided they want to have an argument over the debt ceiling, because of the new year we will be better positioned. they quickly have realized that is not going to be the lever they thought it would be. host: you have covered three presidents, clinton, bush, and now president obama. people say the political divide between these branches is stronger now than it has been in years. you agree or disagree? guest: i absolutely agree. host: why/ guest: i think it is a building that has been taking place frankly since the past couple administrations. it was the war in iraq. for the republicans, the government spending. it is also the election system and the way we run our primaries. we have a more ideological- purified house of representatives than we have had in a very long time. that is because some people would argue redistricting, as well, which in the past election both parties to it. in the states where democrats are not in control they redraw the districts to make the majority democrats. the republican side as well. this is the first time republicans hav

to themselves or to others. >> what path do you see forward? speaker john boehner has said the senate needs to act first on this gun legislation, but senator harry reid is not going to take the lead, he's going too leave it to others. he's concerned about constituents from more moderate states, more rural states, so how does this get moved forward? >> i did hear senator harry reid's comments that he was going to bring up things only that he could get through the house. i would hope that senator harry reid would bring lettingation to the floor of the senate. i hope speaker boehner will allow some of these measures to come to the floor. in the past he has said he would only bring things to the floor that had a majority of his majority. but just recently, we did see speaker boehner bring the fiscal cliff measure to the floor that didn't have the joerts of his republican support. he also brought the sandy relief aid bill to the floor that didn't have the majority of the republicans, but it did have bipartisan majority support, both on the fiscal cliff issue and the sandy issue. so if the speake

republicans. the control the house. -- lynch pins of in the house. john boehner said they wouldn't move of immigration. that is an amazing thing to. they had a brief area where it appeared it would happen and they stalled out. he said he wanted to tackle this. it was clear he wanted to do this in a small piecemeal fashion. that is not the way the senate wants to go about it. they feel if you do that do everything at the same time you lose too many people and you cannot do a deal out of the chamber. that is the big question, to house republicans decide that they want to go full bore an to immigration and of they do, how do they go about doing better? a think we are probably likely that we will see an immigration debate a in of the senate. 2007 a broken to the floor and was filibustered. i think we are probably likely to see a book about a the senate this time around. >> without overstating the of this, how much did the election results but the republicans not in the driver's seat, and the compromise seat on a bipartisan immigration? >> the dynamic of house republicans is interesting of t
